Abstract : The Occupational Rehabilitation Development Study is designed primarily to demonstrate the effects of two contrasting models of case management (Installation-Based and Community-Based) upon FECA costs at Forts Bliss and Know. Also, it will examine the effect of the models upon the return- to-duty rate of injured soldiers. Results will be used to support organizational structures, policies, staffing patterns, and health care service protocols that improve case monitoring and reduce FECA claims. Information was collected throughout the implementation phase analyzed in the final phase of this four- phase study. Data concerning several variables--such as number of lost time days, number of days on continuation of pay, number of new claims, and medical costs--was gathered manually on forms designed by the contractor. These were analyzed using quantitative and qualitative methods to explain observations. Data collection at Fort Bliss was completed through July 1992. The final report of the Fort Bliss Model was prepared February 1993. The Fort Knox Model was terminated due to excessive delays implementing the study....Active Army, DOD civilians, Personnel, Case Management, Workmen's Compensation.
